All the beaches in Goa, India

All the beaches of Goa by INDIVUE

The aim was to see all the beaches in Goa, India, and photograph them to blog them. It took altogether some 14 years, since I was actually living in Europe and there is some 100km of beaches in Goa only. But here they are now – all the beaches in Goa, from North to South.

The namelinks below each photo will lead you to the introductions of each beach. And if there is an existing travelguide for the beach in question, you will find it in the guidelink. –

SOUTH GOA

South Goa has less program for tourists than North Goa. Being less crowded and more in touch with nature, it is a treasure for peaceful holidays. Many beautiful beaches together with the beautiful nature can be found from South Goa, like Arossim Beach, Agonda Beach, Sunset Beach, Majorda Beach, Cola Beach and Galgibaga Beach, just to name a few. Read and see more from the links below –

CENTRAL GOA

Central Goa does not officially exist. There is just North and South Goa, in-between which the Central Goa is located. Areas like Panaji, the capital of Goa, the Dabolim airport, the harbor city of Vasco da Gama and the area of Old Goa belong to Central Goa. Few beaches are also there, like Bogmalo Beach, Miramar Beach, Dona Paula Beach and Japanese Garden Beach.

Read more about these places in Central Goa from the links below.

 

NORTH GOA

Goa is a tiny state in India and a legend tells that the first European to find it was a Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama and a few hundred years later Goa was found by the Western hippies. Nowadays North Goa is the happening place for all kinds of tourists, with lots of entertainment and shops, and all the positive and negative side-effects of tourism.

The sound of Jaipur in the night

Jal Mahal in Jaipur in the night

Truth is stranger than fiction and Bollywood can be everywhere, when you travel in India –

I stopped by to photograph this beautiful building, the palace called Jal Mahal in Jaipur, which was surrounded by water, together with its beautiful reflections, and fantastic singing was echoing from somewhere. You can hear it in this short video, the music playing in the background.

Later on, back in Finland, I made a short video of some of the photographs I took from Jaipur and composed my own music to the background. You can see that video and some of the visual delights of Jaipur, the Pink city in India here.

This article is part of the Indivue’s Travel Opus to India in English. Find the Travel Opus in Finnish here.

You might also be interested in all the blog articles I’ve made so far about Jaipur in Finnish here.

 

 

After this short video of Jaipur, India, and Jal Mahal with nighttime reflections and tabla, more related videos will follow, so do take this visual adventure and subscribe Indivue for more travel and art to come!

Travel Opus to Bollywood and Hindi movies

Travel Opus to Bollywood and Hindi cinema is one of INDIVUE’s web publications. Online since 2005, both in Finnish and in English languages. All the articles are related to Bollywood, Hindi cinema and Indian movies.

In 2018 INDIVUE’s Travel Opus to Bollywood renews itself –

Now it will also guide you to listen to the excellent music from these movies!

In addition you will find plenty of good Bollywood movies to watch. With English subtitles. All this with the guidance of INDIVUE’s Travel Opus to Bollywood (Fin. Matkaopus Bollywoodiin).

So let us start with the introduction to the Travel Opus to Bollywood, which is a video called a Successful landing in Mumbai (the home of Bollywood). Video, images and music by Indivue.

History of Indian cinema in short

Hindi cinema is known by the name of Bollywood, because they combined the names of Hollywood and Bombay. Other theories have also been made about the birth of this concept. (Nowadays Bombay is known as Mumbai, and the commercial capital of India.)

Find more articles about Mumbai in English here and Mumbai in Finnish here.

India itself is a huge country where they speak several languages. India has over 20 official languages and Indian movies are produced with over 30 different languages. The biggest and most important languages are Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Marathi, Kannada, Oriya, Malayalam and Bhojpuri.

Movie itself came to India in 7th of July 1896.

The first Indian document was a wrestling match in Mumbai, Hanging Garden, in 1897.

Bollywood itself is over one hundred years old concept. The first Indian silent film Raja Harishchandra was published in 1913, like it was  mentioned in 21st of June 2012.

Alam Ara in 1931 was the first Indian movie with a sound, and a year later came the first movie with a background music. The movie was called Chandidas.

The first Indian movie in the Venice Film Festival was seen in 1934. It was called Seeta and it got also the first international reward.

Famous Indian movie awards are National Film Awards, Filmfare Awards, Stardust Awards, Star screen Awards, Bollywood Movie Awards and Zee Cine Awards.

The first Indian movie with singing was Bhagya Shakra in 1935.

The first commercially successful movie in India was Chandra Lekha in 1948.

The Indivue Travel Opus to Bollywood in Finnish tells you about the Bollywood movie premieres also. The previous link will tell you what was happening last year, in 2017. Most of those movies have come for sale by now!

If you wish to read and see all that Indivue has written about Hindi cinema in Finnish in the past, then follow the preceding link. You will get to read hundreds of articles.

In 2016 Indivue wrote in Finnish an article about

The Best of Bollywood movies in 2000-2016

The five star movies were these:

  • Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2015 *****
  • Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram-Leela 2013 *****
  • PK 2014 *****

The music samples attached here tell you some essential names behind the music in Hindi movies, like Lata Mangehskar, Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Lucky Ali, Shreya Goshal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

It is worth mentioning that all the Indian movies reviewed in INDIVUE have been seen through Western eyeglasses. That way much of the movie experience is based on translation and English subtitles made by somebody else. This might also explain why some masterpiece in Hindi cinema does not ring the bell of the Finnish viewer. And it goes vice versa as well, of course.

It might interesting for an Indian to see, what do Western people like in Bollywood. So here you go –

Find the Bollywood movies and their reviews here:

The first Bollywood movie I saw in an Indian movie theatre was called Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, and that was in Mumbai back in 2006, in Regal Cinema. Find the article about that movie and Regal Cinema here. Those were the poor days for bloggers, when computers were withering slow and internet connections between Europe and India even more slower.

Some ten years later I got to see another movie in an Indian movie theatre, and that was Shamitabh, a movie partially shot in Finland.

But dvds and blurays have always been my favourites because those movies had English subtitles in them. Very essential. Luckily nowadays it is easy to see Bollywood movies with English subtitles also through Apple and iTunes.

About the actresses in Hindi cinema:

The best and most well known female actresses in Bollywood nowadays are:
